Mercy Hospital Washington has maintained another year of zero infection rates for hospital acquired Methicillin-Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococci (VRE) and lower than average occurrences for other infections.

“People who seek medical care are often the most vulnerable to infections and need the most protection from getting other illnesses,” said Jeanette Holtmeyer, infection preventionist for Mercy Hospital Washington. “When patients come to Mercy Hospital Washington, their chances of acquiring a hospital-borne illness are almost nonexistent. We take extra precautions to keep areas clean and sterilize things that patients touch and things that touch patients. We do all we can to keep vulnerable people safe from harm.”
